    DevGroup NW: The Future of Interactivity

    PCC Cascade Campus

    Interactivity is becoming more and more a dialogue, a bidirectional communication between the information publisher and information consumer with the added layer of aggregators acting as information and subject matter warehousing. The dialogue will be carried through many devices and it will take place everywhere. Ultimately this puts us as content creators in the driver's seat and with the great power of reaching audiences everywhere, and the pressure to create good, compelling content has never been greater. This presentation will explore some of the many areas of interest and concern surrounding the future of interactivity, it's promises and pitfalls.

    DevGroup NW: Small Groups, Tightly Joined

    PCC Cascade Campus

    Homophily describes the tendency of individuals to bond with people similar to themselves. It’s an obvious insight. But it also means everything to the analysis of any given online community. A web community’s success can be predicted almost entirely by asking: “Do the people drawn to this website share cultural traits with one another?”

    This is why Microsoft can’t launch a successful social network. While your average college radio station, or sports fan club, or local music scene are natural gathering places.

    With web communities, technology isn’t important - it’s a culture thing.

    PDXFCPUG: An Evening of Color

    PCC Cascade Campus

    If you’ve been struggling with or wondering about the amazingly cool software, Color (that comes with the Final Cut Studio 2), this is the meeting for you! Jack Chavez has been working with it for years (*see below), and will be traveling here to share some of his expertise and enthusiasm. That is the main reason why we are starting a bit earlier and getting under way at 6:30 for his presentation. Please note, this month’s presentation will be 90 minutes. Lots of good information to be covered. If you know anyone else in the community who might benefit from this next meeting, please pass this newsletter along.

    Please note we are starting the meeting a little earlier to get things moving a little quicker.

    6:00 - 6:15
    Arrival and seating

    6:15 - 6:30
    Tips & Tricks:
    AJ VonWolfe will give a quick tip on creating graphical lower thirds

    6:30 - 8:00

    Jack Chavez will share his in-depth knowledge using Apple's Color. He will demonstrate his methods and workflow when using Color.

    Jack Chavez is a Creative Director and Producer at Intel Corporation where he has worked in-house for eight years. Jack was an early adopter of the software program that came to be known as Apple Color and has mostly recovered from the trauma of trying to finish high visibility videos with flaky beta software. Jack believes the future looks bright for Color and he is an enthusiastic user.

    He got started in production shooting 8mm film shorts as a child, and after a great many twists and turns was surprised one day to find himself starting a fledgling video production company: Image Works. Yes, those jerks at Sony stole the name, but he holds no grudges. Five years later he was hired by his biggest customer, Intel, and he has been trying to get out of meetings ever since. (this is AJ’s description I cannot take credit for the humor)

    8:00 - 8:10

    8:10 - 8:25
    Show & Tell:
    An incredible showing and discussion regarding someone's talented creation TBD.

    Cascade SIGGRAPH - An Evening with Dr. Stuart Sumida

    PCC Cascade Campus - Moriarty Arts & Humanities Building, Auditorium Room 104

    Come and join us for an exciting and intellectually stimulating lecture given by Dr. Stuart Sumida, professor of Biology at California State University San Bernardino.
    A frequent consultant for animated films and special effects projects for studios such as Walt Disney Animation, DreamWorks, SONY Pictures ImageWorks, Pixar, and others, he is a comparative anatomist and paleontologist who specializes in the biomechanics and evolution of locomotion.
    Using a wide variety of examples from the many films he has worked with, Dr. Sumida will describe the potent tools available to artists if they consider some basic rules of animal and human biology. In a qualitative fashion, he will guide listeners/viewers through how what an animal eats and/or its size can account for the vast majority of the structural diversity important to animators and digital effects artists in the animal world. He will then move from real animals, and show how with relatively little new information, the same rules can be applied to mythical and fantastic beasts.
